The Apprentice

Ontario extended our lockdown two extra weeks into mid May, booo! We’re running a bit behind on that “warehouse books to bigbcomics.com” project but I did put in a ton of work on the weekend and have over 600 books…

Covered 365: Day 317

Superman #317, DC Comics, November 1977. Artist: Neal Adams. Hey! Day 317 had some strong covers, nice to see this deep in. I had to go with Neal Adams’ cover to Superman #317, so dramatic, so Adams! Todd McFarlane’s cover…

Covered 365: Day 316

Amazing Spider-Man #316, Marvel Comics, June 1989. Artist: Todd McFarlane. Day #316 gave us a modern era classic and then a bunch of meh covers. There is no denying Todd McFarlane’s Amazing Spider-Man #316 cover, next to ASM #300 this…

Covered 365: Day 314

Sgt. Rock, DC Comics, March 1978. Artist: Joe Kubert. I thought Day #314 was a little wanting, though I really like Joe Kubert’s cover to Sgt. Rock #314, it has the smell of one of those old men’s adventure magazines…

Covered 365: Day 313

Amazing Spider-Man #313, Marvel Comics, March 1898. Artist: Todd McFarlane. It was really tight between the Hulk cover and the Spidey cover but in the end I thought I’d award the originality and ferociousness of Todd McFarlane’s cover to Amazing…

Covered 365: Day 312

Amazing Spider-Man #312, Marvel Comics, February 1989. Artist: Todd McFarlane. Day 312 was an easy day, Todd McFarlane’s cover to Amazing Spider-Man #312 was the class of the field. J. Scott Campbell’s eye popping cover to Wolverine #312 did not…

Covered 365: Day 311

Hulk #311, Marvel Comics, September 1985. Artist: Mike Mignola. A classic comic book cover scene, albeit with role reversal, you can really see Mike Mignola’s Hellboy art style in the skulls on the eye catching cover of Hulk #311. Todd…

Covered 365: Day 305

Captain America #305, Marvel Comics, March 1985. Artist: Paul Neary. I thought Day #305 was so so, the best of the bunch for me was Paul Neary’s Captain America #305 cover. Todd McFarlane continues to impress with a solid cover…

Covered 365: Day 303

Avengers #303, Marvel Comics, May 1989. Artist: John Buscema. I’m such a John Buscema fanboy, I saw his cover to Avengers #303 and it sent me back to that late 60s style of his that produced so many classic covers.…

Covered 365: Day 300

Amazing Spider-Man #300, Marvel Comics, May 1988. Artist: Todd McFarlane. Day 300!! Took a while but we’re at the last landmark issue of this exercise. There have been soft days for sure but surprisingly fewer than I expected. Let’s hope…

Covered 365: Day 299

World’s Finest #299, DC Comics, January 1984. Artist: Ed Hannigan. I know its a silly cover but I like looking at Ed Hannigan’s cover to World’s Finest #299. What could be better than a cover that allows me to type…

Covered 365: Day 298

Wonder Woman #298, DC Comics, December 1982. Artist: Frank Miller. Frank Miller’s cover to Wonder Woman #298 is certainly attention-grabbing and wins the day for its shock factor. Kevin Nowlan gives us a stylistic cover to Hulk #298 that I…
